Storytime at Ray's Monkey House

Hey...we had a good turnout for Storytime last Saturday, and Nicole from the C-J took some photos that went onto the online version of the Courier Journal, as well as onto Kentuckianamoms.com website.

Here's a link to the photos http://www.kentuckianamoms.com/apps/pbcs.dll/gallery?Avis=B2&Dato=20080107&Kategori=MOMS&Lopenr=801070810&Ref=PH

Thanks John for more great storytelling.

I've got some more photos coming soon of my own, so keep a lookout...

Hey...haha...some of you lucky people got to hear me read a few stories tonight (Tuesday). John was sick, and I figured the show had to go on. Went ok, other than my little critter Leone running around like a wild one. Tough to read stories and discipline a five year old, so he got to have a little extra craziness. I'll try to leave it to the pros, but we will try our best to have stories at all the scheduled times.

What else is new and exciting? Some more Ethiopian Harrar, from a different lot than the last bag we had. Nice and fruity, with some blueberry flavor.

New coffee labels were done, but then Jacob's computer decided to eat his final version just before he emailed it to me. File was corrupted. So hours of work lost, but the next final version will be even better. We're using the center panel of Noah's store sign - slightly modified - and it should look really cool...

This Sunday, for movie night, we'll be showing "Earthlings," which deals with humans and animals and the relationships between the species. Viewer discretion advised. Here's a link to the film site: http://www.isawearthlings.com/ and a summary from them:

EARTHLINGS is a feature length documentary about humanity's absolute dependence on animals (for pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research) but also illustrates our complete disrespect for these so-called "non-human providers." The film is narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (GLADIATOR) and features music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby.

Oh....word of warning, our decaf espresso grinder is broken (faulty switch). Should be running by tomorrow if all goes well (parts coming in overnight, and I'm having fun learning more about the inside of a Mazzer Super Jolly espresso grinder)....so watch out you decaf mocha drinkers - you know who you are!
